OTTAWA and GATINEAU, QC, Nov. 25, 2019 /CNW/ - The CRTC is seeking Canadians' opinions on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Société Radio-Canada's programming.
As part of the CBC/Radio-Canada licence renewal process, the CRTC wants to hear from Canadians across the country to ensure that the content produced and distributed by the public broadcaster reflects the diversity of Canada's population, while meeting its needs in both official languages.
Given changes in the models for the production and distribution of content, the Commission is inviting Canadians to review how CBC/Radio-Canada content is made available to them on various platforms. They will also have an opportunity to share their opinion on how content relates to the following themes: reflection, production, accessibility and discoverability, and contribution to democratic life in Canada.
To encourage the participation of Canadians, the CRTC will be hosting a Facebook consultation until December 9.
Canadians can also submit their comments by February 13 using one of the following methods:
- filling out the online form
- writing to the Secretary General, CRTC, Ottawa, Ontario K1A ON2 or
- sending a fax to 819-994-0218.
